z strain

Z strain

dood, didnt you know that z strain was like the most uberpotent superstrain available? I thought that was common knowledge.

but seriously, i think 80% of the people here will say “a cube is a cube”. It depends on your substrate and what you add into it for potency. I wouldnt expect much difference btwn the two. Why dont you just grow it and find out?

To get really high is to forget yourself. And to forget yourself is to see everything else. And to see everything else is to become an understanding molecule in evolution, a conscious tool of the universe. And I think every human being should be a conscious tool of the universe. . . .

i really am glad you came back to us instead of taking the other path. *hug*

And BTW, you wont find a strain that isnt “worth the time for the potency the produce”..

A friend of mine was curious about the potency of Z-strain’s compared to that of other strains, in paritcular GT’s. are the z’s worth the time for the potency they produce.

Abstract

The regulation of pheromone biosynthesis by the neuropeptide PBAN in the Z strain of the European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis, was investigated using labeled intermediates. Injection of radiolabeled acetate showed PBAN did not influence the de novo synthesis of saturated fatty acids in the gland. When deuterium-labeled myristic acid was topically applied to the gland, females injected with PBAN produced more labeled pheromone than did control females, indicating that PBAN controls one of the later steps of pheromone biosynthesis. Although more myristic acid was Delta11-desaturated in the gland in the presence of PBAN, this was counterbalanced by less Delta11-desaturation of palmitic acid, indicating that desaturase activity did not change overall. This change in flux of myristic acid through to pheromone was shown to be caused by increased reduction of fatty acid pheromone precursors occurring in the presence of PBAN.
